The Basics

The West Rim is an ideal day trip destination from Las Vegas, Nevada. Hike the area, visit the Western-style Hualapai Ranch for food and themed activities, or step onto the famous Grand Canyon Skywalk—a glass bridge near Guano Point that allows visitors to see the Colorado River flowing 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) beneath their feet. The West Rim is a popular destination for helicopter tours from Las Vegas, which give travelers a bird’s-eye view of the canyon and nearby attractions such as the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. For a special treat, opt for a sunset helicopter tour that includes Champagne. Bus tours from Vegas offer a different perspective and sometimes also include a visit to Joshua Tree National Park.

Grand Canyon West Rim by Tour Trekker with Optional Upgrades
Our tour of the Grand Canyon West Rim was amazing. Our tour guide, Bob, was extremely knowledgeable and provide a ton of information as we made our way to the destination. We have a lovely lunch that was provided by the tour before heading over to the Hoover Dam. The views were breath taking, the background information was interesting, our guide was wonderful and overall our experience was amazing! It made for a long day but it was well worth the early rise.

Grand Canyon West Rim Bus Tour & Hoover Dam Photo Stop with optional Skywalk
The tour was great and I would definitely recommend it. The tour bus (clean and comfortable), driver and "self-proclaimed" comedian was friendly. NOTE: Would not recommend for people with high risk medical conditions as some passengers didn't wear masks. There were passengers coughing, sneezing, and lots of talking. Also, passengers should be reminded they will be left behind when they refuse to return to the bus at specified time. It's totally not fair to those who obey the rules.

This was the most AMAZING experience. Jake, our pilot, was THE BEST!! He was funny, knowledgeable, patient and over all a great pilot. I HIGHLY recommend this experience.

History of the West Rim

Although the Hualapai Indian Reservation was created in 1883, the Grand Canyon West Rim area wasn’t developed until 1988, when 2,100 members of the Native American tribe decided to open their ancestral lands to visitors. In addition to its stunning viewpoints, the area now offers white water rafting, scenic hiking trails, and rustic lodging to travelers.
